Lluís Dalmáu (1428-1460) was a Catalan Renaissance painter. Born in Valencia, where he would spend the majority of his life, Dalmáu was the court painter of King Alfonso V of Aragon. In 1431, the King sent him to Bruges to study tapestry weaving and learn from the Netherlandish school of painters, the first recorded interaction between a Spanish painter and the school. Upon his return in 1436, Dalmáu introduced the Flemish style to Spain, taking various commissions back home in Valencia. Mare de Deu dels Consellers is the only surviving painting definitively credited to Lluís Dalmáu. The work takes significant inspiration from Northern Renaissance painter Jan Van Eyck, whose work he would have come into contact with during his time in Bruges.
